  • OT: DVD drive problem

    I have a Sony DRU810A dvd/cd drive for my computer manufactured in 2005 .

    When you put a CD into it it does not spin it slips and if you can get it to spin it does not read the CD. The last drive I had used a spring to apply pressure to the CD while on the drive cone/ plate and it worked after it got adjusted this drive does not have one .

    I have fiddled with it put shims and tried adjusting the the CD drive plate and it just does not work.

    Any ideas on how to get it to go ?

    The computer knows it is there and the software is up to date . It tries to work normally .

    These are not very fixable. Pending better ideas, DVD burners
    are in the $30-50 range now (eg and are
    a bolt in replacement. The Sony DRU810A was well thought of
    when it came out in '04.

      You could try running a cd cleaning disc through,that sometimes fixes problems on dvd drives.It sounds like it's dead meat though.
